The Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) Collaborative was established in 2013, when NHS England took up its statutory roles. Initially its purpose was to monitor progress following the Department’s publication of the CVD Outcomes Strategy (2013).

Subsequently, NHS England's priorities, and those of other arm’s length bodies such as Public Health England, were focused around the Five Year Forward View, and so in 2016 they discussed with stakeholders how the Collaborative could be reconfigured to reflect this shift in focus. The Five Year Forward View has many objectives which are relevant to CVD and the CVD Collaborative is intended to support these.
